Bye-bye abortion in Florida. At least that’s what it’s looking like now. Some assholes want to get the Florida Supreme Court to keep it off the ballot and if they succeed in getting their request to them, it’s gone. That’s a no-brainer since the Supreme Court here is quite conservative.

I’m at the point where nothing surprises me anymore yet it still blows my mind how much we continue to step back into the Dark Ages as the attack on women worsens. Well, not just them but the gay community as well. I saw a headline about a bill being introduced to actually charge women with getting an abortion in some other state. It’s just fucking ridiculous. It really is. I dread the day this craziness eventually affects us in some manner. I fear it’s only a matter of time. The more these extreme control freaks get the upper hand and the citizens don’t do anything about it, the further into insanity will be pushed. I get that people’s hands are tied as far as ridding the system of the sick twists that are currently in power because they would have to be physically removed in order to be stopped and no one wants to go to jail. But if they’re really that bothered by what’s been going on in this country then they need to stop voting Republican. The next election will indicate just how much society aligns (or doesn’t) with these delusional extremists.

Got up shortly after 1:00 a.m. I’m having my green tea now and the dishes are chugging away in the dishwasher. Now that we’re cleaning it regularly, it’s been running like a champ. I should have known better even though we never cleaned our old dishwasher in California and it never had a problem. That one was just a much better dishwasher overall, though. I like this oven better but that was the better dishwasher.

I was aware of my snoring a couple of times and the next time I sleep I’m gonna try taping a tennis ball to my back as was recommended and see if that will keep me off my back. I don’t always snore when I’m on my back but sometimes I do.

The light I saw in back could have been ours flickering on. I went back there yesterday and Toni and Ray do have lights on the back of their places as well. All the houses probably do. It’s just that we never use it because we’re never in back at night.

Even though I’ve always cringed at the thought of ever having any kind of eye surgery as many cringe in fear of dentists, the blinder I get each year, the braver I am when it comes to looking into getting my vision corrected. I am so fucking blind that even glasses only help me so much. When I was just a little to moderately farsighted it was a simple fix but not anymore because I can’t see anything near or far. Hell, I can’t even make out some objects in some cases.

It’s going to be a while though because we’re going to have to find an affordable insurance plan that covers it next year or I’m going to have to save for it. You’re talking three to six grand per eye. It would be totally worth it! I would literally gain weight to be able to see without glasses! Glasses are uncomfortable and such a pain in the ass to have to deal with. It was just so much more convenient when I could live without them. Everything is so horribly blurry without them it’s almost dizzying. I hate to think of what my vision would be like in another decade or two if it’s not corrected. I didn’t start noticing myself having to pull back when reading things until I was 34 years old. Well, I’m not going to live for 34 more years so if we can set me back to 20/20 vision, I should be dead long before I ever needed glasses again. That is assuming that’s really how it works and I’m a candidate for surgery. I’ll ask our eye doctor when we see her in a few months. My vision has definitely been declining rapidly. Six or seven months after getting a new prescription things start blurring up again.
